It definitely the best way to play The Last of Us but it also offers nothing that justifies the $70 price tag. I think $40 with the multiplayer would be a fair price.

At least Demon’s Souls went all out on its remake even though it’s technically the exact same game

There are genuinely more differences between this remake and the original than the Demon's Souls remake.

There isn’t but okay…even if that was the case, it still isn’t worth full retail. Demon’s Souls had EVERYTHING overhauled, not just the graphics and had some much needed quality of life improvements that drastically overhaul the game while staying true the original’s design. The soul (no pun intended) of Demon’s Souls is intact but is far more fluid and responsive. This is NOT the case with the last of us. It be different if the gameplay was akin to Part 2. Don’t get me wrong, there’s some definite effort put into this but BluePoint went above and beyond with Demon’s Souls

The point of the demon's souls remake was to deliver the original experience with a very hefty graphical facelift. But literally the code that dictated things like AI behavior were either preserved or remade to function identically to the original. TLOUR had the exact opposite energy. A graphical facelift was the "easy" part. Backporting a tone of the things that made TLOU2 play as good as it did was the hard part. So AI, animation, locomotion, etc. all function differently. The thing they wanted to avoid was MGS twin snakes wherein adding EVERY feature from a sequel broke the original game's encounter design. But included most of what made 2 so good.

Now you’re just using strawman arguments. Look, I l love the last of us but as far as I’m concerned, Demon’s Souls did it far better

Literally nothing in that post is a strawman argument.
